Chef Yohanis’ debut cookbook shortlisted for Guild of Food Writers Award + UK Tour
Ethiopia: Recipes and traditions from the Horn of Africa“, by renowned Ethiopian chef, Yohanis Gebreyesus, has been shortlisted for the 2019 Guild of Food Writers – International or Regional Cookbook Award.
In his stunning debut cookbook that launched in the UK last year, Chef Yohanis takes the reader on a journey through all the essential dishes of Ethiopia, along the way telling wondrous stories.
There are recipes for Doro Wat, chicken slowly stewed with berbere spice; Yeassa Alichia, curried fish stew; and Siga Tibs, flash-fried beef cubes. The cuisine also boasts a wealth of vegetarian dishes. Among these are Gomen, minced collard greens with ginger and garlic; Azifa, green lentil salad; and Key Shir, marinated beet and potato salad. The book then explains the intricacies and variations of Injera, the foundational sourdough flatbread made from the teffgrain (which is gluten free and more nutritious than wheat).
Complete with photography of stunning landscapes and vibrant artisans by Peter Cassidy, this volume demonstrates why Ethiopian food should be considered as one of the world’s greatest, most singular and most enchanting cuisines.
The Guild of Food Writers Awards, the UK’s biggest food book, writing and media awards, recognises outstanding achievement in areas where food writers work and have influence.
